Healthy Vegan Mac 'n Cheese
An unhealthy recipe made healthy! By using ingredients such as nuts, veggies and spices, the sauce gets the same flavour as cheese!
Completely cover the nuts in a bowl with water. Let soak anywhere from 2-6 hours, or refrigerate and soak overnight. Drain fully.
Steam or roast the carrot.
Combine all ingredients (including 1/2 cup water, but not including the optional cheese-style shreds), and blend in a blender or with an immersion blender until completely smooth.
Cook the macaroni.
Cook the chicken. Meanwhile, cut the broccoli and add to the chicken.
Transfer to a small pot and heat to temperature, stirring optional cheese shreds in at the end. Taste, and add extra seasonings (onion, salt, nutmeg, pepper) if desired (I like to add another 1/2 tsp salt, onion powder and a pinch more nutmeg to soften the flavour of the nutritional yeast.)
